Roof Inspections Includes

Structural Inspections

As part of my inspection, I will not only check for damaged structural components but also identify and report any defects that could be the underlying cause of the damage. Sloping floors and cracked foundations are often caused by erosion, groundwater movement, or improper grading around the foundation. Therefore, I will examine the entire house to determine the root cause of the defects and report any existing conditions that should be corrected to prevent future damage to the structure. I also note any existing conditions that should be corrected in order to avoid future damage to the structure.

Structural Inspections Includes:

- Foundation walls and footings

- Columns and pier blocks

- Floor joists, beams, and sub-flooring

- Wall & ceiling structures

- Roof joists, bracing, and roof sheeting

- Nail plates, hangers, and structural brackets

- Attics, crawlspaces, interior, and exterior 

The home's exterior has many different components that contribute to the overall health and well-being of the structure. The exterior is your first layer of defense, and its walls make up the bulk of the structural components of the structure. I closely examine the home's exterior components and how they function in coordination to create a safe and healthy home that will last for years to come.

Exterior Inspections


Exterior Inspections Includes:

-Siding, flashing, and trim

- Doors, windows, and garage door openers

- Attached decks, balconies, steps, and railings.

- Drainage, grading, walkways, and retaining walls

- Gutters, downspout, downspout termination locations


Plumbing Inspections

I got an Oregon Specialty Plumbing License (#STL 124) in 2004 and my knowledge and experience of plumbing systems and components has grown experientially since then. I will be looking at the water supply for cross-contamination, backflow devices, pressure reducing valves and anti siphon devices. Deficiencies in the drainl ine such as the proper type of drain for each fixture, adequately sloped drain lines, and drain line supports will be reported in the plumbing section of the report. I will inspect the water heater and report it's fuel source. I will inspect for leaks, drip pans, over flow drain line terminations, pressure relief valves, proper pipe connections, gas vent pipe, drafter hoods, as well as gas and water shut-off valves.

- Water heaters

- Sewer drainlines 

- Functional drainage at fixtures

- Sump pumps

- Water supply lines

- Exterior plumbing

- Cross Connection points

- Presence of a backflow device

- Drain traps

- Pipe supports

- Pipe insulation

- Fixtures, faucets, and hose bibs

- Vent pipin

Electrical Inspections

Electrical defects are the number one cause of fires in the home, so I take this part of my inspections very seriously. I'll observe the service conductors, the service panel, subpanels, branch wiring, electrical disconnects, service panel bonding, breakers, fuses, smoke alarms, and carbon monoxide detects. I will ensure the wiring is protected from sharp edges, cover plates are present, wire splices are in approved electrical boxes, outlets are energized and grounded, and the Weatherhead or mast is secured to the structure.


Electrical Inspections Include:

- Service panel and disconnect

- Sub-panels grounding and isolated neutrals

- GFCI outlets

- Light switches, light fixtures, ceiling fans, and receptacles

- Polarity and ground at outlets

- Arch fault circuit interrupters

- Report any aluminum branch circuit wiring

- Service amperage and voltage


Mechanical Inspections

During your home inspection, your home inspector will inspect the heating and cooling system and report any system that does not operate using the standard operating controls. I will observe and report any defects in the air supply ducts or gas vents when I'm in the attic and crawlspace. I ensure the return air chase or plenum is free of hazardous conditions such as sewer pipes, gas vents, and refrigerant lines.  Built-in appliances such as the dishwasher, garbage disposal, installed microwaves, range hood vents, cooktops, ovens, and trash compactors will be tested as well.

Mechanical Inspections Include:

- Heating equipment

- Cooling equipment

- Normal operating controls

- Solid fuel heating devices

- Chimneys, Flues, and dampers

- Presence of an installed heat source in each room

Buyer Inspections

Home inspectors Eugene

It's important to keep things in perspective... Most homes have conditions that need attention. The question is, what and how serious are these conditions? We will answers these questions and explains their solutions so that you can make an informed decision before purchasing a home.


Inspections are performed with a systematic approach, breaking down the house as a whole into systems and components. Every inspection is accompanied by a inspection report that can be downloaded from our website, emailed or printed.


Our inspections are non-destructive examinations of the systems and structures of a home, from the roof to the foundation. We perform every inspection in accordance with Oregon Administrative Rules Division 8 Chapter 812. Inspections typically range from

 3-4 hours depending on the size and complexity of the home. During this time we will be evaluating important elements of the home, such as:

- Grounds

- Structure

- Exterior surfaces

- Roof

- Windows & Doors

- Attic

- Interior Rooms

- Kitchen

- Bathroom

- Basement

- Crawlspace

- Plumbing

- Electrical

- Heating & Cooling System

Seller Inspections

Home inspection Corvallis Oregon

A seller inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on the part of the seller. The report can assist in your real estate disclosure and help protect you from future legal claims. Seller inspections (sometimes referred to as pre-listing inspections) are becoming more popular because they virtually eliminate all the pitfalls and hassles associated with waiting to do the home inspection until a buyer is found. In many ways, waiting to schedule the inspection until after a home goes under agreement is too late. Seller inspections are arranged and paid for by the seller, usually just before the home goes on the market. The inspector works for the seller and generates a report for the seller. The seller usually makes multiple copies of the report and shares them with potential buyers who tour the home as a marketing tool. The report might relieve a prospective buyer's unfounded suspicions, and prevent them from walking away. A seller inspection also lightens negotiations and 11th-hour re-negotiations. When seller inspection reports are provided, deals are less likely to fall apart the way they often do when a buyer's inspection unexpectedly reveals a last-minute problem.


Advantages to the Seller:


- The seller can schedule the inspection at the seller's convenience.


- The report can help the seller substantiate a higher asking price if problems don't exist or have been corrected.


- The report might alert the seller to any items of immediate concern, such as plumbing leaks or active termite      infestation.


-The report might alert the seller to any immediate safety issues found, before agents and visitors tour the home.


- Gives the seller time to make repairs and shop for competitive contractors.


- Permits the seller to attach repair       estimates or paid invoices to the inspection   report.


- Removes over-inflated buyer-procured estimates from the negotiation table.


- The report provides a third-party, unbiased opinion to offer to potential buyers.


- The seller can have the inspector correct any misstatements in the inspection report before it is generated.


- The seller can assist the inspector during the inspection, something normally not done during a buyer's inspection.


- A seller inspection permits a clean home inspection report to be used as a marketing   tool.

New Construction

Home inspection Albany

Don't let your builder's one year warranty expire on your new home without having an 11th month warranty inspection done by Oregon Home Inspections. Many construction defects do not reveal themselves for a period of time until after the house has been lived in for some time. When you purchased your new home, your builder likely provided you with a one year warranty guaranteeing most aspects of your new home for one full year.  


Remember, no one will remind you that your warranty is going to expire, so it's your responsibility as the homeowner to contact the builder to inform them of items that need to be corrected.  Normally the builder's inspection is performed between the 8th and 11th month of the first year in your house. This is the perfect time to find any problems and have the builder correct them at no cost to you. Although most home owners have a list of items that need to be repaired, it's important to have a trained professional also look over your home and inspect those places that are often overlooked, such as the crawlspace, attic, and roof. Having a builder's warranty inspection done could save you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. Oregon Home Inspections can provide you with an independent evaluation of your home done by a professional home inspector. During this evaluation we examine your home from the foundation to the roof inspecting such areas of the home as:


- Grounds

- Structure

- Exterior surfaces

- Roof

- Windows & Doors

- Attic

- Interior Rooms

- Kitchen

- Bathroom

- Basement

- Crawlspace

- Plumbing

- Electrical

- Heating & Cooling System
